Any other cruise lines/ships have fast internet like Voom on Royal Caribbean?

Love to take cruise but having a connection to the internet that is fast is very important.   I love to work on vacation (sad to say :)

I have taken cruises that the internet was so slow and a major task just to try to get on and they charge by the minute etc.  

Love the flat rate for fast internet that Royal Caribbean offers plus i can turn my wifi calling on on my cell phone and take and make calls.

 

Any other ships outside Royal offer this?

Honestly, I try to stay away from the electronics on vacation, but I understand your need.

I've heard that RCI has an excellent internet program.

I think the Royal and Regal Princess have better internet, but only in the Caribbean and possibly Southern Europe.

Once they get further North (ie Great Britain, Rusia, Germany and Alaska) the satellites are not reachable and the internet disappears (a better satellite hardware, but only on equatorial orbit).

I heard that Carnival has been hugely improving their wifi, especially on the newest ships Horizon and Vista just recently. I'm not sure if it's rolled out to other ships yet, but apparently it's just as good as VOOM or better. But if you're considering sailing them, I'd call just to double check that the ship I'm sailing on has it.
